Guerrilla Radio: Charlotte, NC

Our film screened at The Light Factory – an arts center filled with various galleries and classrooms. Two poets opened the evening with a powerful spoken-word piece about one of their relatives leaving Cuba illegally on a raft the same day JFK was assassinated.
Solid turn-out, with everyone sticking around for the post-film Q&A. That's been perhaps my biggest surprise on the tour -- an overwhelming Q&A attendance.
Downtown Charlotte feels squeaky clean. Large stone buildings, armies of corporate soldiers marching in their Dockers to grab a $5 coffee. I half expected to bump into Truman Burbank. -- Thomas
